    NAF Profeet Farrier Solution

    The first thing I noticed about the NAF Profeet Farrier Solution was that the bottle was really robust – I’m not worried about this bottle getting knocked over or dropped. I also like that it comes with a brush as it saves you buying one if you don’t have one, but it also means there’s one less thing to root around for. The bristles were sturdy but quite thick, so it was quick to apply but I found that I did get a bit on my horse’s feathers. The brush was firm enough to direct into the grooves each side of the frog, but hard to get into the smallest parts.

    The dressing is a green colour

    The hoof dressing itself is green, which surprised me as all the others I tested have been a more neutral shade. It doesn’t dry green, of course, so this is no problem. Even when I got bits in my horse’s feathers, it seemed to disappear and not cause a problem – although I was a little alarmed at first.

    One hour post application

    It went on easily and dried nicely. I would say this dressing is on the thicker side compared to most others I’ve tried so there were no issues with dripping. However, when you dip the brush it brings out quite a lot. You really don’t need this much at all – a little goes a long way. I found one dip was more than enough for a sole and a hoof wall.

    It has a pleasant smell and, as soon as I applied it, my horse couldn’t get enough of it – he was sniffing at his front feet for at least a few minutes while I was trying to take pictures.

    The instructions on the bottle suggest it should be applied daily to encourage healthy growth and help to defend against waterborne threats. The bottle would last around three to four months used at this rate.


    This product is a good all-round option. It might not be the smartest option for show day, but it’d good value and will help maintain healthy hooves.
